After we designed our original residential daylighting system, we realized it had great potential for commercial applications like corridors, storage rooms and small offices. The Solatube Brighten Up Series is a line of tubular daylighting devices that features Raybender Technology, a patented optical innovation built into our rooftop domes. With it, our systems effectively capture the sun’s rays at the roof level, then transfer them indoors through our highly reflective Spectralight Infinity Tubing. They can be used individually or in multiple configurations to attain predictable lighting results in interior areas. They also can be used to create specific architectural effects like wall washes and soffit lighting. The Brighten Up Series is a brilliant solution for medium spaces with ceiling heights up to 10 ft.

160 DS

The Solatube 160 DS is ideal for small spaces like corridors, restrooms and storage areas. It can be utilized with hard, suspended or open ceilings. A great solution for small areas with ceiling heights under 10 ft or where structural issues or aesthetic goals may limit the use of larger diameter tubes. Includes Spectralight Infinity 0-30 degree angle adapters at roof and ceiling level.
  • Tube size ≈ 10 in. (250 mm)
  • Potential tube length ≈ 20 ft. (6 m)

290 DS

The Solatube 290 DS provides more light than a 160 DS and, in addition to lighting corridors, restrooms and small storage areas, it can be used with hard, suspended or open ceilings. A great solution for small areas with ceiling heights under 10 ft or where structural issues or aesthetic goals may limit the use of larger diameter tubes. Includes Spectralight Infinity 0-30 degree angle adapters at roof and ceiling level.
  • Tube size ≈ 14 in. (350 mm)
  • Potential tube length ≈ 30 ft. (9 m)
